Our third presenter gave us a taste of what Windcatcher can do.

Project Description:

If the wind could sing to us, what would it sound like? Would it sound magical, delicate, and melodic? Perhaps it would have a polyphony of voices which articulate its fundamental source and the objects it comes into contact with, infusing it with rhythms, bass, and sweet melodies? Whether its song is a roar or a whisper, a gust or a flurry, with Windcatcher, the wind has a voice.

Windcatcher is an art installation that exemplifies the creative potential of wind as a source of sound, energy, beauty, and inspiration. Three kinetic sound sculptures become the sources of sounds produced as a result of wind interacting with different physical materials and electronic interfaces. These three specially designed instruments: an Aeolian harp, chimes, and musical wind turbine, together create music played by the wind. The ‘wind orchestra’ produces melodic, harmonic, and percussive sounds, each instrument having its own unique form and function As an artwork, Windcatcher challenges negative perceptions about wind energy and highlights the majesty and beauty of nature and the wind itself: sounds created and manipulated by the undulating ripples of the wind.

BIO: 
A multifaceted artist, Claire’s creativity explores the intersections between sound, space, sensation, emotion, and environment. Classically trained in violin as a child, she has been performing internationally as a DJ for more than a decade. Since moving to Montreal in 2008 to complete her Master’s in Communications at
Concordia University, she has been active in musical composition, live performance, and the creation of interactive installations. Articulating messages of sustainability through interactive motion and sound, her installations employ sensing technologies in combination with sound synthesis, creating music as a result of kinetic movement. Her first project, ///Friction, involves three bicycles that produce and manipulate sounds. This was followed by Acousticaquatica, an underwater art experiment that explores the
relationship between humans, technology, sounds, and fish. And Windcatcher, where she designed and built three musical instruments played by the wind. Musically-speaking, her heart lives deep in the underground: she founded the nomadic Blackbox parties in 2011, released her debut album ‘Under a Midnight Moon’ on Montreal’s Archipel Musique in November 2012, and has recently begun putting out a plethora of esteemed releases as well as performing her own music live, addicting new audiences to her unique brand of dark, deep, intellectual and alluring electronic music.
